A. they have established that the Russian government did not directly participate in the attacks, it angered
What does THEY and IT stand for.. ambiguity

B. it has been established that the Russian government did not directly participate in the attacks, it angered
Best .. removes the ambiguous THEY but " it angered' still leaves some doubt

C. it has been established by them that the Russian government did not directly participate in the attacks, they angered
ambiguous THEM and THEY

D. they have established that the Russian government did not directly participate in the attacks, they angered
ambiguous THEY

E. it has been established that the Russian government did not directly participate in the attacks, angering
ALTHOUGH requires another contrasting clause. ANGERING makes it a modifier

B but it could have been written better..

B. it has been established that the Russian government did not directly participate in the attacks, it the Russian government angered

A, C, D: ambiguous THEY, THEM.
E: “angering...” illogically modifies the previous clause.
